This week on Wrestle Buddies, GameSpot’s professional wrestling podcast, Chris E. Hayner and Mat Elfring have a very serious discussion. Of course, when it comes to this show, very serious discussions are usually pretty silly. We also cover a few different topics, and check in on our favorite Attitude Era WWE superstar.
First up, a very serious debate erupts between Mat and Chris as they decide who the real GOAT–greatest of all time–is in professional wrestling. Neither of them have actually prepared their arguments or even chosen who they will champion, but surely this should be taken as the final word in the matter.
Next, it’s nostalgia machine time as we head back to the latter days of WCW and its attempt to cash in on pop culture. Did you know Chucky, the murdering doll from the Child’s Play movies, once appeared on WCW programming? He did, and it was truly awful. You’ll learn all about it in this episode, including how he promised Scott Steiner a leading role in a movie and never followed through.
Then, we open the gimmick junk drawer and look back on a character that didn’t last long during WWE’s Ruthless Aggression era. Mordecai was sort of like a photo negative of The Undertaker. He attempted to remove sinners from the WWE, including the biggest sinner of all–Scotty 2 Hotty.
We also answer your questions in this episode and check in on noted vampire warrior professional wrestler Gangrel with the latest installment of Gangrel Watch. New episodes of Wrestle Buddies are released every Thursday. You can check it out on Spotify, Stitcher, and Apple Podcasts.
